Halloween Sensory Bin, featuring the -at word family

LittleMan has been working with word families quite a bit lately. Since he already knew how to read the word “cat,” I thought it would be easier for him to learn other -at words. When it dawned on me that many -at family words can be associated with Halloween, I knew I had to do something fun with that.

I raided our school supplies to find a variety of letter manipulatives. I raided our Halloween decorations to find props for each word.-at word family Halloween Sensory Bin from Suzy Homeschooler (2)
A witch hat (from a Build-A-Bear costume) and magnetic letters spelling “hat.”
A rubber rat and spoons spelling “rat.”
A foam cat and clothes pins spelling “cat.”
A rubber bat and foam letters spelling “bat.”

I really like that the spoons and clothes pins can be used as both letters to spell out the words as well as tools to scoop and pinch the items in the bin.

The filler for this bin is some old dry pasta from our sensory stash, and a handful of green and purple pom poms.
